Painting Nails

When you need a glossy green coat of paint with sparkles where do you buy paint? We shop the finger nail polish aisle! Surprisingly green was not a color in very many shades. But when you find one named Go Go Green, it just screams to be a pinewood derby car topcoat.
At first I tried airbrushing it on but couldn't achieve a glossy finish because it dried too fast. So armed with a lot of patience and the tiny applicator brush included with the bottle cap, we HAND PAINTED the little green monster. And with nearly half a bottle left over there is plenty for the entire pit crew to color coordinate on race day.
